I've been reading this blog Into Mind and also Colette Patterns Wardrobe Architect Series. I've also had tons of time to think about what I wear every day as I am now sewing some of it. It inspired me to completely purge my closet last night. It's been a while since I last did that, and even when I did do it previously, I was always saving things for sentimental reasons or in case I fit them again. Last night I was completely and thoroughly brutal about whether I would ever wear an item again, I tried it on and if it looked terrible, I donated it.
So two massive garbage bags later, I am left with about 6 skirts (3 are green? Hmm), 1 pair of dress pants, 3 pairs of jeans, some workout clothes, 2 hoodies, about 5 dresses (2 fancy and 3 everyday), an awesome swimsuit, about 8 loose button-downs/blouses, 1 blazer, 1 sweater, 4 cardigans and a handful of knit tops (hopefully to be shortly replaced).
You guys, it feels and looks like NOTHING is in my closet.
